Bees and Butterflies

These paintings of bees and butterflies on flowers were created using alcohol ink on Yupo paper. 

Alcohol ink is made from saturated dyes suspended in alcohol. As a fluid medium it can be used to create dynamic, energetic works of art. The ink can be manipulated with air, or painted using a brush. The alcohol evaporates rapidly, leaving behind beautifully vibrant paintings.
